Congratulations to Mauricio Trejos Castillo from Angus!
Mauricio picked up a pretty nice cheque for $70,448.10 from the June 10, 2017 LOTTO 6/49 draw! He matched five numbers plus the bonus number to win a secondary prize.
“I always purchase LOTTO MAX and LOTTO 6/49 tickets because of the big jackpots,” shared Mauricio while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “I was actually supposed to be in Montreal the day I bought my winning ticket, but plans changed and I’m so happy they did!”
Mauricio went to the store to play his numbers for the next draw. “I checked my tickets at the same time. When it read ‘Big Winner’ I was in complete disbelief.”
Mauricio went home to share the news with his wife of 11 years. “I told her that I had a surprise. She thought it was dinner take-out,” he laughed. “When I told her I won big she didn’t believe me until I showed her the validation slip. She was super happy and excited for us.”
Plans are underway for Mauricio and his family. “I’m going to buy my wife a ring, take my family to Costa Rica and do some home renovations.”
“Winning the lottery feels like a blessing,” he concluded.
In case you’re wondering, the winning ticket was purchased at Young’s General Store on Cross Street in Angus.
